“You’ve got to think of how these images were used in American culture…they were everywhere and they were used to market anything from oils to ink, from food products to clothing…People operate from an emotional place when they see these images because they think of the past as being something that happened and that the concepts don’t linger. But these concepts continue to affect us in many ways, in modern concepts of advertising as well as in contemporary advertisements.”

good post. for a bit more of this in media, might i suggest the (still) groundbreaking Marlon Riggs documentary, Ethnic Notions.
Yes, I saw this film a while ago, it was very insightful.
